China - Europe: Europe learns from Pope on how to deal with China

" Man" at risk in China's great development
Non-representative economic figures, difficulties in obtaining enough energy supplies and, above all, the need to maintain a repressive system are the stumbling blocks to a less than rosy future for the Asian giant.

The Vatican asks legitimate bishops to step aside in favour of illegitimate ones

John Baptist Lin

Last December, Mgr Peter Zhuang Jianjian of Shantou (Guangdong) was forced to go to Beijing where "a foreign prelate" from the Vatican asked him to leave his see to illicit bishop Joseph Huang Bingzhang. He had received the same request last October. Mgr Joseph Guo Xijin, ordinary bishop of Mindong, is expected to become the auxiliary or coadjutor of illicit Bishop Vincent Zhan Silu. Sinicizing the Chinese Church means supporting the principle of independence and follow the leadership of the Communist Party.

Pope in Peru: Young people, the heart can’t be “photoshopped”, because that’s where real love is found

At the Angelus in the Plaza de Armas, Pope Francis calls on young people to follow Jesus with all of themselves, without discouragement, in the example of St. Martin of Porres, the half-caste saint. Silent prayer for peace in the Republic of the Congo. To the bishops, the example of St. Turibius of Mogrovejo, an indefatigable evangelizer: "Today we would call him a 'street bishop'". To the contemplative religious the invitation to pray for the unity of the Peruvian Church.
